WHY HBA WAS FOUNDED - Just as the HBA tag line above states: - HBA Founders attended numerous networking events And found that.. - Most small business owners were unhappy with most of their business networking options.
THE REASONS ? - Most Were too expensive and/or not worth the money - Groups became more social OR a “good ole boys club” - Obvious Favoritism towards bigger or more tenured businesses - Events became just a social gathering OR worse yet - A Drink Fest! - Organizations would “Nickel & Dime” members to death - They had a Political or other agenda not always shared by the member HBA was created to serve the “UNDERSERVED” at an amazing value!
